Why purchase this 2020-S San Francisco Silver American Eagle?
Fans of the American Silver Eagle Series are sure to love this 2020 Proof edition. 2020 has proven one of the most consequential years in recent American history, and this coin makes for a great memento. This issue is especially meaningful given that it was struck in San Francisco, California, not far from some of the fires that have ravaged the American West.
Featuring the Iconic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The coin's obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty half dollar. Liberty strides to the left, where the sun rises, carrying branches of laurel and oak in her arm. Obverse inscriptions include her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2020." Adolph Weinman is among the most important designers in American numismatic history. He is best known for the Walking Liberty half dollar and the Mercury dime. Besides his contributions to the coin world, he sculpted numerous pieces that are displayed prominently in Washington, DC and elsewhere.
Reverse: John Mercanti modeled his reverse design off of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle protects a union shield under thirteen stars. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim. John Mercanti served as Chief Engraver of the US Mint. During his time with the mint, he designed more coins and medals than anyone else in the institution's history.
